Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 6 MB vs 0.25 MB 24x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much newer manufacturing process 45 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much higher clock speed 3 GHz vs 1.47 GHz More than 2x higher clock speed
Much better PassMark score 2,160 vs 344 More than 6.2x better PassMark score
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.22 GHz vs 2.11 GHz More than 2x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 2 vs 1 Twice as many threads
Much more l2 cache per core 3 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 12x more l2 cache per core
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.23 GHz vs 1.47 GHz Around 3x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
